We've already seen and driven the all-new Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck, but that was the four-door crew-cab version. Last week, Volkswagen unveiled a two-door regular cab Amarok at the IAA Commercial Vehicles expo in Hanover, Germany. The company calls it a design study, though it's expected to be very similar in looks and capability to the production version that will go on sale in 2011.
The Amarok regular cab concept boasts a 26-inch (65 cm) longer cargo box than the crew version, for a total length of 7.2 feet (2.2 meters). But that's not necessarily its strongest feature. It can return up to 34.1 mpg (6.9 liters per 100 km) equipped with the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that makes 122 horsepower and 250 pounds-feet of torque.
There are still no plans to bring it here.
